About the Health and Wellbeing champions programme

The NHS People Plan 2020-21 sets out a number of health and wellbeing ambitions that aim to enable NHS organisations to create cultures of wellbeing, in which their workforce feel supported and well at work. One of the ambitions in the NHS People Plan is a programme of work that encourages all NHS organisations to roll out a network of Health and Wellbeing Champions, in a way that works best for their organisation.

This network of Champions will be able to support colleagues as needed, signpost to relevant resources and regularly check in. In turn, this will support the ambition to embed cultures of inclusion, compassion and wellbeing across the NHS.

The elearning programme has been developed to support champions in understanding their role. The session is intended for all appointed Health and Wellbeing Champions to complete.

Who has the elearning programme been developed for?

Health and Wellbeing Champions, Health and Wellbeing Allies, Health and Wellbeing Officers, or Health and Wellbeing Advocates working in any NHS organisation.

In this elearning programme, Health and Wellbeing champions can expect to learn more about the role of a champion and how to implement what they learn across their organisations.
